Lalitha Sahasranama Sthothram

Sri Lalitha Tripura Sundari

Aum iaim Hreem Shreem Shree Mathre Namah

Translated by Jayaram V

Lalitha Sahasranamam (The thousand names of Sri Lalitha) forms part of the Brahmanda Purana as a conversation between Hayagriva and sage Agasthya, who probably introduced it to the worshippers in the Southern India. According to the legends, it was originally composed by the eight goddesses of speech (vagdevis), directly under the supervision of goddess herself and conveyed to the world through Hayagriva and Vyasa. It is an encomium to the Goddess Lalitha Thripura Sundari, extolling her virtues, victories, associations, aspects, and, greatness, perfections, powers, and manifestations. The Sahasranamam has a great significance in Hinduism because it is used in the ritual and spiritual worship of most goddesses, such as Parvathi, Durga, Kali, Lakshmi, Sarasvathi, Bhagavathi, etc. It is used in recitations (parayana), ritual worship (homas), meditation and contemplation (dhyana). It is unique for its structural composition, metrical beauty, and spiritual value in knowing and understanding the numerous powers and manifestations of Shakti.

Sri Lalitha is the Mother Goddess, an aspect of Durga, and consort of Kameswara (Shiva), who combines in herself both the immanent and transcendental powers. She resides in the divine city of Nagara, at the top of the Meru Mountain. Famously known as Maha Tripura Sundari, the beauty of the three cities, she is known for her extreme beauty and ferocity, with long and flowing hair, lotus like eyes, vigorous body, and extreme brilliance. She is not only feminine, homely, loving, and delicate but also extremely fierce, proud, intimidating, and courageous. She rules the hearts and minds of her devotees, gods and goddesses, spiritual teachers, students and common people. While she casts her bewitching spell on everyone, she readily destroys it when she is worshipped with devotion.

The Puranas state that she is easily pleased by worship, prayers, and devotion and quickly grants boons to her beloved devotees. She slew the demon Bandasura, leading a large army of Shiva ganas,Nitya Devaths Avarna Devathas and great Shaktis like Chandini, Anima, Mahima, Brahmi, Kaumari, Jwalamalini, Bala, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Mahendri, Chamundi, Maha Lakshmi. She is also the resplendent goddess who is situated in all the Chakras as the great serpent power, Kundalini. The following prayer addressed to her elevates her both as Supreme Goddess and Brahman himself in his numerous aspects as Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. The Lalitha Sahasranama Sthothram is a very auspicious prayer, containing the thousand names in 182 verses. This translation of mine which I have done with devotion and humility is a little offering at her infinite, graceful feet. It is does not include the nyasam and dhyanam, but only the sthothram containing her thousand manifestations.

Suggestions for Further Reading

Guidelines to pronunciation: Sanskrit is essentially a language of sounds and sound vibrations. The efficacy of Sanskrit prayers depends upon the vibrations that are produced during chanting. It is difficult to transliterate Sanskrit words into English with full justification to the original sounds. In the above stated transliteration we followed a simple approach to make it easier even for those who are not familiar with English or Sanskrit. Wherever you find repeat vowels (aa, uu, ee) please stretch the vowel sound (for ex., aa as in vast or path, uu as in cool or root, ee as in eel or feel). Similarly, "ai" should be pronounced as in gait, fight, or tight. Th should be pronounced as in think or thick, but when t alone is used, it should be pronounced as in two, top or tip.
